Foxes

Living and Learning with Faith, Friendship and Fun

Welcome to Foxes Class

Hope you had a lovely summer.
Welcome to Fox’s class page.  Well done everyone for getting off to such a fabulous start – we’re so proud of you all. Everyone has settled back in to the routine of the school day happily and we are all enjoying the new Friday art, life skills, music and PE days immensely.
The grown ups in the class are Mrs Horsford (class teacher) and Mrs Young (Monday – Wednesday), Mrs Bird (Monday – Wednesday pms only) and Mrs Dyson (Thursday – Friday).
The children will need their PE clothes on a Tuesday and Friday. On a Friday this term the children will be enjoying life skill lessons with Miss MacMillan. These are predominantly outside so please can children bring in warm clothes/waterproofs/old trainers/sunscreen as appropriate.
Homework will be set via the class page on the website on a Friday and needs to be handed in by the following Wednesday. This shouldn’t take any longer than 30 minutes to complete. In addition, it’d be brilliant if the children could read at home for at least 10 minutes after school every night.
If you have any questions then please do email me at hhorsford@charing.kent.sch.uk.
